I have now a fully working Panasonic MSX2+ (with tape port!) which i am 100% satisfied with! Smile I have 2 important questions:

1) What memory upgarde should i get? I have heard loads but am not sure which is best suited for me! I am not really a techy person so this upgrade should be as easy as possible! My system currently has 64k RAM / 128k VRAM

2) Is it still possible to by tape cables for this machine?

Thanks for your time! Smile

I don't know where you live but some forummembers can do internal memoryupgrades. Another solution would be to buy an external memory mapper. That's what I do, I use an external 1Mb Mapper for my Sony MSX2+.

Repairbas on this forum sells new Tape cables for connecting a data recorder to your MSX.

thanks for the info. i live in England. the external mapper sounds good if it can run memory hungry games. where can i buy one from?

Padial is AFAIK only one who produces memory mappers ATM.

These cartridges are not cheap... and I mean both price & quality...
